The F1 chief executive recently visited Ferrari's Maranello headquarters, where he heard the tamer sounds of the incoming turbo V6 engine.

"Even (Ferrari president) Luca di Montezemolo said it sounded terrible and didn't like it," Ecclestone told the Hindustan Times.

The 81-year-old Briton tipped FIA president Jean Todt to "get rid of it".

"I think Luca is also saying we should suspend it for two or three years. I think it is sensible to get rid of it and stick with what we have got," added Ecclestone.
